current training and to offer applied research training that
is interdisciplinary and sensitive to health system decision
maker concerns. It is expected that four RTCs, one in each of
the Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario, and western regions will be funded
for five years at a level of $400,000 per year. All proposed

under the European Unions Fifth Framework Program for technological
research and development. The call for proposals is part of the
horizontal cooperation program known as Confirming the International
Role of Community Research (INCOII). The call encourages the
organization of activities (seminars, workshops and conferences,
networking, etc.) to promote technological research and development
within both the European Union and cooperating countries. The
call for proposals is available at Web site www.cordis.lu/inco2/calls/199909.htm.
Proposals are accepted every four months with the next deadline
June 16 and the last one on Oct. 6, 2002.
